Dash facelift

Just changed the dash trim from the standard black to silver. I thought it just looked to plain I used 3 coats of primer 4 color coats and 4 lacquer coats. Think it looks loads better what do you think? Click image for larger version

I am doing the same thing with color matched vinyl using Avery. I am wrapping all the interior trim and the exterior "black bits" too...
